At Power Options For Me, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision about going solar. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive from our customers:
Q: How does solar power work?
A: Solar panels convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity, which is then converted into alternating current (AC) electricity by an inverter. This AC electricity can be used to power your home or business.
Q: What happens during a power outage?
A: During a power outage, your solar panels will not generate electricity unless you have a battery backup system in place. If you have a battery backup system, you can continue to use solar energy to power your home or business during an outage.
Q: What are the financial benefits of going solar?
A: Going solar can help you save money on your energy bills and increase the value of your property. Additionally, federal and state tax incentives are available for solar installations, making solar even more affordable for homeowners and businesses.
Q: How long does a solar installation take?
A: The length of time it takes to install solar panels depends on the size and complexity of the installation. A typical residential installation can take anywhere from one to three days, while larger commercial installations can take several weeks.
Q: What happens if I move?
A: If you move, you can either transfer your solar lease or power purchase agreement (PPA) to the new owner of your home or business, or you can buy out the remainder of your lease or PPA.
Q: What kind of maintenance is required for a solar installation?
A: Solar panels are very low maintenance and generally require only occasional cleaning. However, it's important to have your solar system inspected regularly to ensure that it is working properly and efficiently.
